520    In this epic, beautifully written masterwork, Pulitzer 
       Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of 
       the great untold stories of American history: the decades-
       long migration of black citizens who fled the South for 
       northern and western cities, in search of a better life. 
       From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost six million 
       people changed the face of America.
